4-5 Nights Itinerary

Hi

I'd like some suggestions on an itinerary from Milan (already have been so no need to spend a day or night day) to Zurich for 4-5 nights.

Where would you go? We are a couple in our 30s and don't mind changing hotels every night.

Thanks!

One of the shortest and cheapest train rides you could take from Milan to Switzerland would be to Lugano, generally 1.25 hours from Milano Central train station and departing at least every two hours. Allow another hour for the airport train. A Swiss Travel Pass or Half-Fare Card would work starting when you depart from Lugano, or when you cross the border if going further.

To get straight to the mountains, you can reach the Lauterbrunnen area (our top choice) in 4 hours from Milano Centrale. See https://www.ricksteves.com/europe/switzerland for Rick's sightseeing priorities and Looking Up Train Schedules and Routes Online.

4-5 nights is plenty of time for the Lauterbrunnen valley as Laura suggested!
